We seriously can’t believe that Ellie is TWO! Time has flown by so fast, but we have loved every second!! It’s been such a sweet & fun year getting to see Ellie’s personality really start to show! She is a mess, & we just love her!!

You may remember Ellie’s 18th month blogpost where I shared our favorite moments from her 1st birthday until her 1/2 birthday! Well this post is full of ALL of our favorite moments during the past 6 months from her 1/2 birthday until her 2nd birthday!! It might even be a longer post than the last one because we’ve made so many fun memories! I definitely don’t expect anyone to make it to the end, but if you do, you are amazing ha! I do these posts just for me to be able to look back & see all of my favorite photos of Ellie in one place, & I’m so thankful to get to do it! 

At 2 years old, our girl loves reading books, TALKING, going to “school”, playing with her friends, eating ALL the snacks, going to her Daddy’s football games, & hugging our dog Zeke! We are so thankful for our girl!!


Some of our favorite moments during May included cheering on the LSU (& Tennessee) baseball teams, Mother’s Day, playdates with friends, Daddy’s last day of school, & Memorial Day!


Some of our favorite moments during June included family breakfast dates, playing in our own splash pad, more playdates with friends, & our annual Hambick family beach trip!


Some of our favorite moments during July included second beach trip of the summer, visiting Daddy’s school, baking & walking dates with Mama, & Mama’s 30th birthday!


Some of our favorite moments during August included Daddy’s birthday & our annual lunch with him at his school, the start to football season, our first “Mommy & Me” dance class, & Ellie’s first day of school!


Some of our favorite moments during September included going to all of Daddy’s games, watching our fave college teams, & Aunt Kendall & Uncle Jesse’s wedding!


October was definitely our most full & FUN month! Some of our favorite moments during October included having Mawmaw & Grandaddy visit & going to the LSU/Tennessee game, going to the pumpkin patch with friends, watching Tennessee beat Alabama, our first fire-pit & s’mores of the season, painting Ellie’s pumpkin & decorating pumpkin cookies, our annual fall party with our family in Tennessee, & so many Halloween events with friends!


We can’t believe our girl turned TWO on November 4! We kicked off her birthday weekend with our annual fall family photoshoot & then dinner at our fave Mexican restaurant. That night, we gave Ellie her birthday gift from us – her own car! The morning of her birthday, we had donuts then took some pictures of course. We had lunch with Daddy at his school so we could all be together for a little bit before his playoff game that night. I’ll be sharing photos from Ellie’s birthday party soon!
